It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 14, 1968). The US president was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Jules Asner and Scott McClellan. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Love Is Blue (L'Amour Est Bleu) by Paul Mauriat and His Orchestra. In UK The Mighty Quinn by Manfred Mann was in the top 5 hits. Hour of the Wolf, directed by Ingmar Bergman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1968 while Between Parent And Child by Haim G. Ginott was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Unloved. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Hamurabi.
